Ultrasound Systems - Current and Future Players
Ultrasound systems are widely used to achieve early detection and clinical assessment, providing non- radioactive, cost-effective diagnostic ultrasound imaging in a variety of clinical settings. With the growth of the elderly population and rising prevalence of diseases worldwide, the need for ultrasound systems is growing consistently. Real-time 3D/4D ultrasound systems lead the ultrasound devices market with a steady growth, due to their effective functionalities and advanced features. Meanwhile, 3D ultrasound systems draw a respectable portion of revenue of the ultrasound business due to cost-effective offerings. The market for 2D ultrasound systems is mainly driven by rural and remote areas with low economic resources. Additionally, today’s handheld ultrasound systems with better image quality and more advanced modes have consistently gained acceptance. Due to their reduced size and ease of use, handheld systems play an important role in the point-of-care market and can be used by healthcare personnel other than radiologists. These systems are expected to drive the ultrasound devices market to new heights.
